Please convey the results. If John Amazeen's origins are non-European, this would be very interesting. Individuals I've interacted with from an Italian/Greek/Portuguese-American background have not, as their first reaction to the name, connected it to their cultural backgrounds. While individuals from Morocco and Tunisia I have, or members from my family have encountered do recognize the name and are somewhat perplexed at my looks and first name connected to the name "Amazeen".

(However, as a counter-argument to this perspective, John Amazeen's name was spelt phonetically at the time, he being illiterate. Thus, he may well have had the Mediterranean background described by his literate contemporaries, with a name spelling that was not accurately reflective of the Italian/Greek/or Portuguese pronunciation.)
